I am planning the bachelorette party for a good friend! We are planning to go to Toronto for the weekend. I have met some of her friends but only briefly – it is so difficult planning for people you do not know (especially when there is little input given in the facebook group).
3PM Amsterdam Brewery Tour
Head back to hotel (Cambridge Suites) for games/ pre-drink before dinner
7PM Dinner at Richmond Station
After dinner – Looking for live music bars (She likes Rock, 90’s classics, Alternative)
Club – Looking to go dancing (Low/ No Cover)
I feel like it is not super bachelorette-y but the tour will be something different and I know she doesnt want anything too crazy. I’ve looked into baking classes and dance classes but all that starts at 50ish pp and I am not sure what people are looking to spend. (especially with hotel, dinner, drinks, travel costs)
Looking for Live Music bar suggestions and Dancing bar suggestion (not sure if we will make it out dancing if we are liking the live music, but would be nice to have the option). Hoping to stay in our hotel’s area (Queen and Younge)
Any suggestions would be super appreciated – thanks 🙂

For live music, you could check out the Horseshoe. It’s at Queen West and Spadina, and is legendary. http://www.horseshoetavern.com
Also check out the Dakota Tavern, and the Drake Underground (at the Drake Hotel).
As for dancing, I don’t go out dancing much, but I remember that Stone’s Place was really fun. Oh, also… the Rock ‘n’ Horse was hilariously fun. I don’t even like country music but we all had a great time. And they have an amaaaazing outdoor patio. Not sure when you’re going (is it this weekend?), but if it’s warm weather I definitely recommend this place.
ETA: You’re going to have to venture out more west (or east) than Yonge Street. That’s not really where the fun bars and clubs are. There are mostly pubs and restaurants around there, because it’s mainly businesses, the Eaton Centre, and St. Mike’s Hospital.

Thanks! Unforunately horseshoe has a band playing that night ($17) which people did not seem interested in (although I think she would really enojoy). I will check out those other ones! I LOVE Rock and Horse but she relaly dislikes country haha so I don’t think we will end up there. Ok, thanks for heads up, I am totally down to head away just thought if there were some good options in the area. It is May 2nd.

Dance Cave plays rock/alternative and 90’s stuff depending on the night. Kind of a grungy vibe but I’ve seen bachelorette parties there.

Ooooh Dance Cave! Good one.
I just read that Clinton’s has a themed dance parties like 90’s and 2000’s… Here’s their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/ClintonsToronto/photos_stream
Plus… upstairs is a karaoke bar called XO… have spent many a happy night there! And it’s a good bachelorette backup plan 🙂

I don’t have a ton of advice on where to go, I’ve always just followed the leader at Bachelorette parties. I do know that every one I’ve been to we’ve been on a list as a bachelorette party. If you find somewhere you want to go, call ahead and see if you can be added to the VIP list – you usually have to get there before a certain time but it saves you standing in line or getting turned away.
